Abstract

Background/Aims: The association of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) with gastric malignancies has been proven by many studies in the literature. However, information about EBV-associated inflammation/gastritis remains limited. The aim of this study is to establish the prevalence of latent EBV infection in patients with chronic gastritis without H. pylori infection.
